that. >> the president had town meetings in montana, north of wyoming, and then in colorado, south of wyoming and said that if you have a program you like, you can keep and in the same speech, he said we would eliminate medicare advantage which is to 10 million american citizens. i am sure there are people like you today -- we really have 3000 in wyoming -- when they put the program in place, it was intended for people in cities and people in rural communities. that is louisiana. i had the privilege to tour the newly opened new orleans state medical university medical area. it is stated the art. doctors around the world will come their to learn things about computer simulations surgery. i am an orthopedic surgeon. it is beautiful what they have therefore cardiologists and for general surgeons and four medical students, four nurses, positions, it is absolutely incredible. they also have a program to help train physicians to practice in rural louisiana, to help them go through a program with help for their tuition so they will stay after they've graduate to be pediatricians, obstetricia

committed to getting this done. this is obviously a tough time in america, a tough time here in montana. just six months ago we were in the middle of the worst recession in our lifetimes. we were losing about 700 jobs each month. economists of all stripes feared a second coming of the great depression. that is why we acted as best as we could to pass a recovery plan to stop the freefall. i want to just beat briefly about the recovery plan because that has our people's view of the health care debate. the recovery plan was divided into three parts. one-third of the money in the revery act went to tax cuts that have already started showing up in the paychecks of about 400,000 working families in montana. 400,000 working families have seen their taxes reduced because of the recovery act. [applause] we also cut taxes for small businesses on the investments that they make in more than 200 montanans small businesses have qualified for new loans backed by the recovery act, including ten businesses right in the boseman area. [applause] another one-third of the money in the recovery act is for em

. >> my colleague from montana brought up the testimony from mr. ludwig, i want to go into another area of his testimony that i found very interesting. he makes the point, and i'm sure he could make it much better than i, which he may get a chance to do later, but he would suggest avoiding a two-tier system that allows the largest too big to fail institutions over smaller institutions. he makes the point that perhaps it would be also two-tier regulators, the best light it is in one system and others in another. the--- to regulators in once -- the best regulators in one system and the others in another. and not treating a bias and the system that would be in favor of those institutions to develop over those that were not too big to fail. >> there are a couple of questions, one being weather should be tier one entities designated as to begin fail, regardless of the occ and oversight. and weather as part of regulatory consolidation that you have a regulator based on size. we have concerns about designating institutions formally as tier one. i think you could probably say he was not, based

indian reservation in montana. rural vermont or west virgin i can't recollects to really get a sense for it. opposition for differences. using technology to give students opportunities for higher level classes. a simulate a world. teacher housing and residences are a big thing. we need to touch everybody and challenges are not unique to urban or suburban. interesting is as we look at the 2000 high schools that we call drop out. 20% rural. this is national problem at this level. not inner city problem. they want to fund it best in the every single area and find the lessons we can learn from rural, urban and suburban. many different inputs will offer the solutions we need. not any particular effect. i'll take a few more and then switch to jim. thanks. >> um... i'm sure alecture of the chief technology from the schools in louisiana and i'd like to ask you from your vantage point, what do you think the department can do to encourage innovation in programs already in place. a large amount of federal dollars that come to schools such as myself and entitle, i.d.a programs so those dollars c

rich. right? the people like lee bron james and warren buffett and hannah montana and those evil rich people. but those people in the top income category who will pay this higher tax, two thirds of those people are small business owners and operators. now, how in the world are you going to get more jobs when you tax the employers that create the jobs? one last thing. i've used more of my time but i feel this is so important. we have got to overcome this class warfare rhetoric in washington this idea that the rich are evil has become a cancer cell in our public dialogue. here's the amazing thing. if we do the 5% income tax increase for the health care and then we do, you all know that president obama wants to move back to the old tax rates. he wants to rescind the bush tax cuts. that means the highest will go 35 to 40%. then you add on the 5.25%. and then if you live in a state like new york or california or new jersey or almost half of the states, you're talking about another 8 to 10%. so we're talking about a tax system in the united states where over half of americans high inco

referred to as the saudi arabia of coal. these are in kentucky, ohio, west virginia, montana and wyoming. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no america has that and more. we have the uranium, wind, solar, bio mass and hydropower. we have it all and can develop it in a responsible way. the authors of cap and trade don't want to develop all american energy resources. they want to start the energy race with china and india two laps behind as opposed to three laps ahead. the more energy america can produce, the stronger the american economy will be. energy development creates jobs, not just green jobs, but real red, white, and blue jobs. we need to keep all the american jobs we can. we need them all, and the solution rests on our shores. thank you, madam chairman. >> thank you, senator. senator. >> as i was looking over your testimony, it's clear there's a central message that we have here in the united states right now, the technology, row sources, know how to build a clean energy economy that will create jobs and cut our dependence on foreign oil, reducing pollution. th

yesterday, i held a town hall in belgrade, montana, and we had a pretty good crowd. some were big supporters of reform. some had concerns and questions. some were completely skeptical. i got tough questions, but even though montanans had strong opinions, they did not shout at one another. they were there to listen. that reflects the american people and what our democracy is about, more than what has been covered on tv these last few days. that is why i thank all of you for being here today. i am going to take a bunch of questions, but before i do, i want to talk about what health insurance reform will mean for you. there is a lot of misunderstandings of there. first of all, what we are proposing is a common-sense set of consumer protections for people with health insurance. people with private health insurance. i expect that after reform passes, the vast majority of americans are still going to be getting their insurance from private insurers. we have to have some protections in place for people like nathan, people like you. so insurance companies will no longer be able to place a
